Alexa Offers Developers Web Search Platform

Alexa Internet, Inc., an company, announced the new Alexa Web Search Platform (AWSP;, which provides public access to the Web crawl collected by Alexa Internet. Users can search and process billions of documents—even create their own search engines—using Alexa's search and publication tools. Alexa provides computing and storage resources that allow users to quickly process and store large amounts of Web data. Users can view the results of their processes interactively, transfer the results to their home machine, or publish them as a new Web service. The AWSP is in limited beta; interested developers can apply for an account.

The platform's automatic Web service publication utilities allow users to provide their output data to the world and eliminate the need for users to support their own service infrastructure. As a full-service Web analysis and Web service publication platform, the AWSP should allow any user with an Internet connection to access Web content on large scales and provide new services or applications to the online community. The platform was designed to be used by developers and researchers with some basic programming experience and familiarity with the Unix/Linux environment.Source: Alexa Internet, Inc.
